We’ll take a dive into the world of the oldest group of predators on land — Arachnids. They captivate our fear and imagination, yet we know surprisingly little about these creatures. Lauren Esposito, from Cal Academy, will lead the way. We will explore some of the current research on arachnid behavior, biochemistry, and potential therapeutics.
Honeybees play a critical role in pollination and the decline in their population is a very troubling. Lewis Bartlett takes us on a whistle-stop tour of recent, current, and future work looking at the intersection of diseases and bees.
Note: This is part of a 2-day taste of science event with talks on November 8 and a film screening on November 9.
Each month, taste of science brings you fun-filled events at bars or restaurants with scientists presenting concepts in engaging, accessible ways.
